Thought I would let you guys see what I'm working on. I gave $1500 for it about 2 years ago. Needless to say I didn't let any (more) grass grow under it before I was putting it in my garage.

This is what it looked like the day I picked it up.

This is what the interior looked like the day I picked it up... not too shabby

See my shit-eating grin sealing the deal (little did I know he was the one grinning after I left)

What it looked like in it's new home, before I really found out how big a piece it was.

In it's current state... looks like it exploded doesn't it.

Slowly but surely she'll come back together.

Oh yeah, it had a 460/c6 in it when I bought it. got it running and driving upo the street for a day or two. Really didn't know what I was in for. Needless to say the 460 made it a booger to steer (manual steering at the time). I knew it was right for the car after I created a few new curse words changing the plugs.. too heavy and literally shoehorned in. The 460 turned out to have come from a 69 mark3 so it was a rare piece. Returned more than half my investment in the car just selling it.

Get-er-Done!!!! Kinda cool it came with a bigblock even though it may not have been ideal. Interior is pretty nice too.

It's a lot of project. My wife just went to 3rd shift and I work 8-5 so between kids and everything it's hard to find time for it. That's the way though.

Sweet project, definitely will enjoy watching the progress, it's been my one of my goals in life to do a complete restore on a 67-70 fastback.

So, I got to put a few hours into her today. Well, I learned a valuable lesson... cheap used parts are not really cheap. Well, I am replacing both shock towers as the others are cracked and rusted beyond use. Well new are about 150-175 a piece so I found two really good used ones in a local yard. I had the attendee plasma cut them out with all the suspension still attached... mistake. Try removing the coil spring when you can't compress it enough to put a compressor on it. Well it sucks. It took some major effort.
Well, the next dilemma was removing the lca from the shock tower. It is a single bolt running through a bushing. This bolt was fused to the bushing sleeve and wouldn't turn out with an impact. It took a foot long cheater bar to break it loose. Lucky I didn't twist the head off the rachet. Then after breaking it loose and removing the nut it wouldn't unthread out. Time for the bfh.
I know have two shock towers ready for me to remove the left over front and rear apron metal. Fun spot welds.
However, I did get my car completely level on the stands and get some measurements so I can remove the front drivers frame rail. I got about 20 measurements from various spots on the frame. Gotta make sure I get that back in there straight.
Today's lesson... I still saved about 300 dollars on the shock towers as I only paid 30 bucks for both from the yard.

Don't forget the 15hrs labor =D.

It's ok...I've got THREE days in the ultra secret part of the car I'm working on now lol...and it's not even halfway through the first part!!  Probably two more days or so in finishing this...then about 10 days waiting for taxes to come back...then the real work begins...then more waiting lol, then MAYBE it'll be ready to drive.

The good news is...it should help the car out a good bit...and is virtually free (for now).  The sucky part is...it's a hurry up and wait then hurry up to wait some more deal. 

/sigh...anyhowI feel your pain brother...and your car is at LEAST a year farther from the road than mine.

Thanks man. My brother was here today and he said they I sure had ripped the car apart. He said that I was crazy to tear down a running and driving car. He said that he would have quick patched then undercoated. That just isn't my style. I would know it's there and that would just bum me out until I did what I've done. Find the bad no matter where or what and repair or replace. It will be worth it in the end... whenever that is lol.
